HYWIRE MONTHLY WRITING WORKSHOP
Did you know that we hold a monthly Writing Workshop? Well we do!
When? 4th Thursday of every month, from September to June. 7PM Start time
Where? Burlington Public Library in Tansley Woods. (It’s in a special room in the library. There’ll be a sign.)
What? We like to get some writing prompts and exercises going, but if you would like some opportunities to workshop your own writing as a group, please, bring some in!
– Unless otherwise stated! Be sure to check events for alternate venues.
– Can’t find us? Ask the Black Bull staff where the slam is! They’ll be happy to point you in the right direction!
3rd Thursday of every month. Sign-up is @ 8pm with Open Mic and then Slam to follow
For smoking hot poetry!
A cover charge $5 (Only $5???) goes towards paying for the feature performer and prize money for the winner of the slam.
As always we’ll have an Open Mic for any and all types of performance; bring your guitar, your songs, your stand-up, your rants and ragtime show tunes – it’s all about getting it out there! Or you can always sign up for the slam, see if you have what it takes to reign supreme, and take home the cash prize.
Thursday, November 19th
BSP WOWps Qualifier feat. T. Miller!
It’s time for us to figure out who we’re sending to be the FIRST EVER representative of The Burlington Slam Project for the Women of the World Poetry Slam!
NOVEMBER’s top female slammer will be given an opportunity to travel and represent our community in this annual event put on by Poetry Slam Inc. (www.poetryslam.com) The slam is open to all, but priority will be given to Female-identifying artists who have competed either Sept. or Oct; and only someone who fits those criteria will be eligible to claim the spot. We will cap the slam sign-up at 12 this month.
And we’ve got an awesome feature lined up for you all! Coming back to the Burlington Slam Project for the first time since February 2013, T. Miller!
